Travels Through Italy

July is not a time that I would pick to travel in Italy. Or many parts of southern Europe, for that matter. It's hot, and there are too many bloody tourists! But the timing of this tour was dictated by the schedules of others, and well I was in Italy!

Map Of Italy

The above map of Italy shows the major areas of this trip. The names are Italian, mostly quite close to their English equivalents: Rome is Roma, Florence is Firenze, and Milan is Milano, at the top. Lakes Como and Lecco (the one body of water) appear just above the 'L' of Milano. The lake above the 'M' is Lago Maggiore. Pisa is a little above Livorno. The Dolomites are in the area around Bolzano/Bozen.
